View original language description ↓
The business of buying and selling Andean products became the most important and vital activity for Hilda’s family. She acquires her merchandise from the fairs in small villages near Juliaca, the city where she lives. She then distributes them wholesale to later be sold in Lima, the capital city of her country. With this business she manages to cover the costs of the most urgent needs of her family and the education of her three children. Her dear husband Wilber also actively participates in the business, and along with him she puts forth her greatest effort in order to expand and increase her family’s income day by day. Her desire is to increase the amount of capital invested in her business and they both believe that by achieving this, they will grow their revenue.
